Ghanaian actress and film producer Yvonne Nelson came under intense criticism after her remarks on the recent academic scandal following the release of BBC’s investigative report ‘Sex for grades.’
The investigative piece uncovers cases of sexual harassment meted out to University students by lecturers in the University of Ghana and the University of Lagos.

“Sex for grades! Sex for jobs! Sex for everything in our part of the world! Your brains don’t matter here. It’s the coveredparts they want, oh wait, these parts arent covered anymore…it’s free on social media. Will it ever change??”
